Seasonal Pantry is the adorable specialty food store around the corner from my apartment. You can find treats such as duck fat (a great gift for your chef friend/ fakeroommatebcyourparentsdontknowyoulivewithaguy), homemade cookie spread, jams, and bourbon cherries (a great gift for your ex/guywhodrinksfourcocktailsanightalone). In addition, on Wednesdays-Saturdays they hold a supper club which consists of a pre-fixed menu and wine pairings prepared by chef Dan O’Brien. O’Brien has been praised for his modern approach to rustic cooking.
Next Sunday, they are preparing a “Dine and dash” pop-up event at their store from 12pm-9pm. For $35, you will get a tagliatelle with classic butter sauce and shaved white truffles. Wine ($5) is optional. Reservations are available (the restaurant seats 12) in the store and by calling (202) 713-9866.
